Johannis - Cemetery / Johannisfriedhof, Nuernberg

by Doris October. 17, 2009 12614 views

St.Johannis is the oldest and most artful cemetery in Nuernberg. In the Middle Ages , when great pest and cholera diseases spread in the city, the dead where brought here. Nowerdays Johannis is one of the central parts of the modern Nuernberg.

Many famous citizens found their rest here - for example the painter Albrecht Dürer (see above), the artist Veit Stoß and the philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach

The cemetery is a little paradise for those who like old sorts of roses!

Looks like an intersestig place - the gravestone on pic no. 1 is simply beautiful.
and picture no. 5 ... it's amaznig, that the cementary is so close to other buildings. and I can't see any tall fence. that's really different with what I'm used to :)
